I am glad that we agree on something, however clearly race is not about science, so it is doubtful that a scientific understanding of race will solve the problem. Race is primarily about ethnicity, It is also about social and economic differences.
Thus we can say that African Americans and European Americans are members of the same species, so they are not superior or inferior, but that does not mean they are not different.
If people are different, doesn’t that mean that some are better than others? Logically the answer might be Yes, but as a Christian I say No. What do you think?
@Christy, the question I am trying to raise is this, If evolution is from God, as EC believes then it follows that evolution in the form of Natural Selection should encourage goodness.
If Natural Selection encourages conflict based on the desire to survive as Darwin said, then it does not encourage goodness and therefore it would seem NOT to be from God. This was the point of Darwin and Dawkins, who say that evolution points to the none existence of God.
My position is that evolution in the form of ecological Natural Selection encourages goodness by rewarding working together for the mutual goal of survival and thriving. People point to predation as conflict that justifies survival of the fittest, however ecology clearly indicates predation is just one aspect of the ecology that benefits all involved.
Survival of the fittest is about how people and other creatures relate to others, or ethics and theology. As long as we fail to reject this bad science and worse ethics, we do a disservice to science, ethics, and theology.
